Ubisoft announced at Gamescom today that Tom Clancy's The Division 2 is now available for preorder. There are four different tiers of The Division 2 coming out so buckle up. You can preorder the Standard, Gold, Ultimate, or Collector's Edition for the Xbox One, PS4, and PC.
Any preorders for The Division 2, regardless of version, will gain access to the private beta and Capitol Defender Pack which includes several in-game items and weapons. Here's a breakdown of the various The Division 2 editions available for preorder.
- Standard Edition – Just a copy of The Division 2, that's it.
- Gold Edition – Includes the base version of Division 2, 3-day early access to the game starting March 12, 2019, and the Year One Season Pass which includes 7-day early access to all free Year One Episodes, activities, and other content.
- Digital Ultimate Edition – A base version of Division 2 with 3-day early access, the Year One Pass and three extra digital packs – Elite Agent Pack, Battleworn Secret Service Pack, and First Responder Pack.
- Dark Zone Definitive Collector's Edition – The big one. This version includes the base version of Division 2, everything included in the Digital Ultimate Edition, a 30cm figurine of Division 2 agent Heather Ward, steelbook case, a Book of Lithographs, a selected soundtrack, and a map of Washington D.C.
Actually, there's also the Phoenix Shield Collector's Edition that's only available at the Ubisoft Store. It contains everything in the Dark Zone Collector's Edition but instead of the Heather Ward figure you'll get the Brian Johnson figure.
Ubisoft released some new screenshots for The Division 2 today as well, though it's mostly images of a destroyed Washington D.C. Let the sense of sad patriotism wash over you after seeing D.C. in ruins I guess.
The Division 2 is the sequel to the 2016 military shooter game by Massive Entertainment. There's some mixed signals about the Division 2's themes, but we know it follows a clandestine special-ops unit known as The Division that hide among civilians until the proverbial bad stuff hits the fan. In Division 2, D.C. is under martial law and rogues have taken the city and turned it into a warzone. The Division needs to liberate the peoples under these rogue factions.
